  1. Ultimately, p.s. confirms Kidd's talent without expanding it or achieving the comic/dramatic heights of "Roger Dodger."
  2. 75
    Fascinating because it require us to see the younger character through two sets of eyes -- our own, which witness an attractive woman drawn to a younger male, and the women's, which see a lost love in a new container.
  3. 75
    An intriguing and satisfying romance that may hold some appeal even for those who normally do not like films about affairs of the heart.
  4. The question of whether this is a movie about reincarnation or fate or middle-aged delusion remains unaddressed far beyond our capacity to care. Many of the admirably long conversational scenes are pointless; some, like Harden and Linney's climactic bitch-fest in a hotel room, are flat-out absurd.
  5. The movie implodes, with each actor less vivid than he or she ought to be and each character less connected to the others than necessary for such an arbitrary plot.
  6. 50
    Grace fares better than Linney, and both escape with more dignity than Harden, whose blowsy, wanton Missy is a coarse, soap-opera caricature of a suburban hoyden.
  7. What's disheartening is that an actress as fine as Ms. Linney has to endure the indignity of such excremental nonsense.

    In one of the deleted scenes, we can see that Louise(Laura Linney) has no input when it comes to who the selection committee admits into In one of the deleted scenes, we can see that Louise(Laura Linney) has no input when it comes to who the selection committee admits into their art program. She stays out of the room. What's in the movie works better because the happy ending makes us a little uncomfortable. "P.S." is at its best when Louise and F. Scott(Topher Grace) are feeling each out. There's also a pretty hillarious scene that involves Linney with Gabriel Byrne(playing her ex) because his confession, albeit heartfelt and sincere, is nonetheless, self-indulgent and smarmy. But "P.S." loses its steam when it turns into a high school drama between Louise and her best friend Missy(Marcia Gay Harden). Expand
